Development, Modernism and Modernity in Africa, Hardback Book

Development, Modernism and Modernity in Africa Hardback

Edited by Augustine (Texas State University, USA) Agwuele

Part of the Routledge African Studies series



This anthology examines the "unfinished project of modernity" with respect to the unrealized potential for economic, social, and political development in Africa.

It also shows how, facing the consequences of modernism, Africans in and out of the continent are responding to these unfinished projects drawing on (a) the customary, (b) the novelty of modernity, and (c) positive aspects of modernism, for the organization of their societies and the enrichment of their lives even as they contend with the negative aspects of modernity and modernism.
